Finca Retama Farmstead
Ranked #8 of 30 Speciality Lodging in Ronda
Reviewed 2 October 2013

Myself, my wife and baby stayed here for 5 nights. The lodgings are very well appointed in a peaceful and rural setting. The hosts were most helpful with suggestions for local walking and eating. The property is very tidy and well kept. I would most definitely like to return.

Finca Retama is lovely family base in a rural setting 10 minutes' drive from the medieval town of Ronda
The rooms are traditionally furnished and well equipped. The pool is large and well maintained, the setting is very quiet- surrounded by sunflower fields,

Owners Nick and Julia live onsite and are friendly and helpful while respecting your privacy; and the dogs are great - we borrowed them for walks, great fun for our kids and the dogs

Overall highly recommended- if we return to Ronda this will be our first choice

We spent four happy days staying at Casa Abuela. It was comfortable and extremely peaceful.What a treat to open the shutters in the morning onto the surrounding countryside, with the lanes full of wild flowers and the hills in the distance. Nick and Julia are extremely friendly and helpful hosts. There are so many things to do and see in Ronda and further afield are the charming white washed villages of Zahara and Grazalema. We would definitely return.

We were on a two month trip to Europe with our three children, and Finca Retama is a standout location with fantastic hosts. We really enjoyed the area and were sorry to spend only a week there. It is the one place we visited that we wished we would have stayed longer to explore. There are truly amazing places to visit just 20 minutes away, and we loved the peaceful setting of the farm. The pool was fantastic and our children were in heaven. Nick and Julia were perfect hosts and were invaluable to us especially when our baby got an ear infection. They were able to get us right into a doctor, and we felt comfortable asking them for anything we needed. We definitely want to return!

Finca Retama is an ideal self-catering accommodation only 10 minutes drive from the centre of Ronda. It is rustic rather than luxurious, but the accommodation is spotless and Nick and Julia are kind and thoughtful hosts. We stayed in the 3 bedroom apartment on the first floor of the farmhouse but also had a look round the 2 bedroom Casa Abuela, which looked great, with a lovely shaded terrace right next to the pool. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend. And on top of that Ronda itself is fantastically unspoilt and the surrounding countryside is beautiful

We are just coming back from Spain and the week we spent at Casa Abuela was most enjoyable. Julia and Nick are great (and gracious) hosts and their property is simply beautiful. The pool is quite sizeable and was the one spot where our two kids, 10 & 13, spent most of their time.

The property is only a 10 minute drive away from Ronda, which offers a ton of sight-seeing, Restaurants, Shopping etc.. But, if one does not want to drive that far, there are several Restaurants that are even closer.

We can only recommend Finca Retama and are looking forward to going back there one day.

My family and my sister had a glorious 7 days at “Casa Abuela”. The place was a wonderful quite location just out of Ronda in a quant farming area. Nick and Julia, the owners were always close by to help with providing suggestions of what to see during our stay. Ronda has so many we did not get to see all of them.

You know you are getting an extraordinary service when you arrive and there is a wonderful bottle of Spanish red waiting for you. Don’t be fooled by the rustic design of the cottage as it has all the mod cons you would need. Even the kettle….. We had found most Spanish self-contained places did not have a kettle!!!

If we were to go back to Spain (got too many other countries to see) we would not hesitate to go back to "Casa Abuela"
